    A fantastic twitch puzzler in the tilt-the-board tradition of Marble Madness and Super Monkey Ball (as guitarexplosion mentions), with fresh and enjoyable twists to the formula. There're lots of (quite varied) levels, and even though simply completing them all won't take long, the replay value is huge.

There're lots of (quite varied) levels, and even though simply completing them all won't take long, the replay value is huge. For one, each level is essentially two levels in one, as the high score and time leaderboards require different strategies. There are plenty of shortcuts to find, plenty of high-speed turns to finesse on the edge of a precipice. And thanks to the smooth and responsive controls, the game feels super-fair, a leaderboard junkie's heaven. Expand

    A great game to play. I don't usually buy arcade games but this game has everything i'd want - An amazing collection of puzzling levels and my own music playing on the level. Love it.

    Great puzzle game at a good price. The object is to guide a blob of mercury through various mazes of uneven ground, surprise holes, color dependent areas, and magnets. The game is designed to make use of your favorite music, although the soundtrack provided is not horrible. The only glaring glitch in the game is randomly you will either be slowed down where your best option is suicide,Great puzzle game at a good price.

The only glaring glitch in the game is randomly you will either be slowed down where your best option is suicide, or the game will just lock up at a white screen. However, despite this (and a patch could easily fix it) the game is fun for puzzle lovers. Expand

    Oh, the nostalgia. I loved this game on the psp and I still love it on the xbox. Kind of short but still fun. Why would anyone not get this game? Its only 5 dollars.

    Brilliant little game: Stumbled across this by accident and after the trial paid the $5 to upgrade - It's a great game you can just zone out in front of for a few hours and chase high-scores. Great value for money and really polished.

    Imagine Your favorite marble maze game (ex. Super Monkey Ball, Marble Madness). Now imagine that with a blob of thick liquid. Although the main game could be beat in a measly 2 hours, there is many bonus levels and things for the perfectionist to keep playing. And at 5 bucks, this is a steal.

    In addition to the main Discovery mode you can also compete for times in Ghost mode or tackle the levels in the Challenge and Bonus modes where you are often required to complete the level with 100% of your mercury. There is plenty of content that easily makes this worth the $5 initial purchase and with the promise of more DLC and some that is already available; Mercury Hg is one of the better XBLA purchases this holiday season

    Being able to add your own music is a very nice touch. [Christmas 2011, p.85]
